Since I figured out that I was a 3/1, my focus has actually been more on inner work, and less on the style aspects of it all. Learning that I was a double extrovert was shocking to me, since I had always seen myself as an introvert. I also figured out that I was an ENTJ, and not like an INTJ like I thought. I do think that the inner self cannot be separated from your personal style, so please let me know if this is something you’d be interested in having me write more about.
I also haven’t been writing new posts because in this same process, I realized that my Aspiration was Playful, and not Sophisticated. But I didn’t want to share more about that until the Playful Cheat Sheet was ready, so I’ve been holding back to a degree. But now that I’ve finally finished it, in between working full-time from home (which really wears me out, perhaps another sign of my double-extrovertedness!) and also freelancing, and just generally being tired like pretty much everyone else in the world right now.
Playful might appeal to you if you have a more lighthearted, fun, colorful, and animated approach to your personal style. The Playful Cheat Sheet can be found here. Please also see the Pinterest board to find out more, and check out the workbook if you’re interested in the Personality Squared system as a whole.

I would LOVE the personality with style combination. As someone trying to figure out both this would be so helpful! I feel like I’m a 2/3 or even perhaps a 2/1. I’m an infp but my style is romantic ethereal dramatic types so I’m most drawn to your edgy, glamorous and pretty boards. But I’m a romantic in the looks men love. So it’s really interesting to try to figure out how it all meshes together. Your site and boards are fantastic and would love to see you explore this further.Reply

Thank you! My goal with this is to provide people a way to include the style elements that they feel the most like themselves in, regardless of what their typing may be in various other systems. 🙂 So I hope it is helpful to you!

Thanks for this one Vanessa!
Let’s wait for the complete set but based on the cheat sheet Playful makes sense to me both as Core and as Aspiration. Or maybe I don’t have any Aspiration at the moment.Reply

Yeah, it’s definitely possible to not have an Aspiration. You can even just have a Core.

I’ve enjoyed reading about your DYT journey very much. I’ve recently fully accepted that I’m a T4 after being solidly stuck in 2 for a very long time, determined to soften myself. I tried to make a go of 4 a couple years ago but apparently I just wasn’t ready. I especially was not ready to be both a Soft Dramatic and a 4. So it is great to see someone else delving into the inner work. I absolutely cannot separate my outward self expression (style) from my inner self, so more content on that topic would be fantastic! I’m still undeclared on my secondary. I lean toward secondary 2 based on style (ethereal and romantic with flow and drape) but … it’s very hard to imagine that I am a double introvert. It may be similar to the double extrovert mentality. I don’t percieve myself as QUITE that still. I’m an INFJ and every now and then that inferior Se likes to come out and play or perform. And I do see myself as an ideas person/visionary. But reality is I am bothered very very little by quarantine and shelter in place. So I look forward to observing your continual journey. Your blog has really helped me hone in on my own style, even if my path has been a little more winding than direct at times. Thanks for letting us come along with you!Reply
